Eat and Drink

  • Gutara Mitaka - This ramen shop serves a broad range of customers: white collar workers, blue collar workers, and the nearby university's students. It has a particularly delicious spinach and pork ramen. [from Wikivoyage]
  • Calends Chofu - This is a cut-above curry restaurant which has several curries which put the usual Japanese fare to shame. Try ordering the set menu with dessert, rum-topped ice cream is a nice finish after spicy curry. The owner may try to speak some English with you. [from Wikivoyage]
  • Ishi-i Chofu - This lively izakaya restaurant specializes in pork, served on skewers like yakitori. The friendly staff will help you sample almost any part of the pig, including heart, liver, head meat and esophagus, pointing to their own body to describe it, if necessary. They have usual pork and beef dishes as well. [from Wikivoyage]

  • National Astronomical Observatory of Japan Mitaka - This is the main campus of Japan's national observatory. Data collection mostly occurs elsewhere, which frees up many of the buildings here for a view. About half of the campus is open to the public. Many buildings are decades old and house equipment used by the observatory decades ago, in a well-preserved state. The entire place is surrounded by forest, and unlike much of Tokyo, it's quiet and peaceful here. Some people bring a sketch pad and draw the buildings. There are no guides. A self-paced tour might take 1-2 hours. [from Wikivoyage]
